I don't think it exists. This was always one of my favorite first set tunes. But after 1992 (and I'm possibly being generous) I think this tune sounded pretty sterile. Would love a top notch version from '93 on. FYI, I don't think the dean smith center '93 is all that great so please exclude.

Can't help with this one lobster... I always liked David Brombergs version better... " I've got a butchers knife and a gun. I'll cut you if you're standing still, and shoot you if you run"...

Stagger Lee met Billy and they go down to gambling


Stagger Lee throwed seven
Billy said that he throwed eight
So Billy said, hey Stagger! I'm gonna make my big attack
I'm gonna have to leave my knife in your back

Why do you try to cheat?
And trample people under your feet
Don't you know it is wrong?
To cheat the trying man
So you better stop, it is the wrong 'em boyo

You lie, steal, cheat and deceit
In such a small, small game
Don't you know it is wrong

Billy Boy has been shot
And Stagger Lee's come out on top
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat the trying man
To cheat Stagger man
You'd better stop
So you must start all over again-all over again
You got to play it, Billy, play, you got to play it, Billy, play
And you will find it is the right 'em boyo

But if you must lie and deceit
And trample people under your feet
Don't you know it is wrong
It is the wrong 'em boyo
